Discoveries

Серия: "-"

Cook's great voyages marked the end of an era in world history. As he sailed into Hawaii in January 1778 he made contact with the last of the human civilizations to grow up independently of the rest of the world. But equally for the Polynesians and Melanesians of the Pacific, Cook's arrival in their midst merely marked a further (if disastrous) twist in diverse histories already many centuries old. In this immensely enjoyable and absorbing book Cook's journeys are reimagined, attempting toleave behind (or master) our later preoccupations to let us see what Cook and his associates experienced and what the societies he encountered experienced - from the Beothuks of Newfoundland to the Tongans of the Friendly Islands.

Thomas Nicholas

Thomas L. „Tom“ Nicholas (* 8. März 1938 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) ist ein amerikanischer Jazzschlagzeuger und Perkussionist.

Nicholas spielte während der Schulzeit in Philadelphia zunächst kurze Zeit Cello, bevor er sich dem Schlagzeug zuwandte. Bereits als Teenager spielte er in der Rhythm-’n’-Blues-Band von Jimmy McGriff. Nach dem Wehrdienst zog er nach San Francisco, wo er mit Kenny Burrell und Michael Howell Platten einspielte, aber auch mit Dewey Redman, John Handy, Pharoah Sanders und Eddie Moore arbeitete.

Anfang der 1970er zog Nicholas nach New York, wo er regelmäßig in den Gruppen von George Coleman und dem Space Shuttle Omnibus von Eddie Moore arbeitete, aber auch mit Roland Prince und Kenny Barron aufnahm. 1977 zog er nach Europa und arbeitete mit Lou Blackburns Gruppe Mombasa und vor allem mit der von Peter Giger initiierten Family of Percussion.

Von seinem neuen Wohnsitz Darmstadt aus ging er mit Abdullah Ibrahim, Özay Fecht, Albert Mangelsdorff, Archie Shepp, Amina Claudine Myers, Wolfgang Lackerschmid, Carla Bley, aber auch mit dem Vienna Art Orchestra auf Tournee. Er spielte auf dem Montreux Jazz Festival, dem North Sea Jazz Festival, der Jazzwoche Burghausen, den Leverkusener Jazztagen, aber auch in Pori (Finnland).

Aktuell arbeitet Nicholas mit der eigenen Band Black and White Co-Op, im Duo mit dem Saxophonisten Monty Waters sowie in Jürgen Wuchners Band und der Gruppe des gambischen Koraspielers Aziz Kujateh. Daneben gibt er Workshops und Privatunterricht.
